Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin , 282 pages, read by Angie, on 08/21/2012

This is a wonderful story about a young girl, Minli, who travels to ask the Man in the Moon how to change her family’s fortune. Along the way she meets many different characters and hears their stories.

I have to admit that I don’t think I got everything out of this book by listening to it on audio. I would get distracted, not pay attention, do something else, so I am not sure my review is completely accurate. I might have had a much different experience if I would have read the book itself. However, I did enjoy Minli’s story. I like the setup of this book with the stories within the story. I like that the stories all contain a lesson or a moral of some sort. And I really liked how it all tied together at the end. One day I may have to read the book and find out all the parts I missed.
